Win Defrag.

Win Defrag is a rogue disk defragmenter and computer optimization program that will hijack your Desktop and display fake messages saying Windows can not find hard drive disk/hard drive error.
This rogue program is from the same family as Win HDD. There is actually nothing much new to say about rogue programs from this family. Once Win Defrag is installed, it will pretend to scan your hard drive disk, RAM and other stuff for errors. Then it will prompt you to run its bogus defragmenter. If you choose to run it, Win Defrag will change your Desktop background as you were in Safe Mode. It will fix some supposedly found errors and problems for free but in order to remove all the fake errors you will be prompted to pay for Win Defrag. Don't buy it. That won't help you.

As a typical rip-off rogue, Win Defrag will display fake pop-ups and error messages to scare you and to make you think that tour computer is seriously messed up. It will state that your hard drive is missing or that RAM memory usage is critically high.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\AppData\[random].exe
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\afwserv.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastsvc.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastui.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
Although it is possible to manually remove Win Defrag, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
